Alice Coltrane: Ptah, The El Daoud LP (Verve By Request Series)

Alice Coltrane

Recorded in the basement studio of the Coltrane home in 1970, Alice Coltrane’s fourth album is a masterpiece of spiritual jazz. The title track is an ode to the Egyptian God, Ptah (the El Daoud meaning “the beloved”). Moments on the album reach what Coltrane defined the term Turiya as: "a state of consciousness — the high state of Nirvana, the goal of human life.” Verve By Request Series features transfers from analog tapes and remastered on 180-gram vinyl, pressed at Third Man in Detroit.
